GM Giving builders!
It’s my pleasure to announce that our small DeWork pilot was an outstanding success with most tasks being applied to & resolved on the same day.
To take the next steps, the advice of the community will be very important to build some collective intelligence. As well as, achieving some soft consensus on the details of the proposal.
Request a 10,000 USD budget in GIV to begin using bounties for all WG ASAP, while working groups assess their bounty needs and create their own budgets.
A bounty system to outsource tasks has these main benefits:
Keep core contributors focused on the key objectives of Giveth roadmap and their WG.
Find the right people to perform talent-specific tasks.
Engage with more talent and let them see how awesome Giveth is.
Support in the decentralization of tasks and operations.
Have a trial environment to assess new contributors & an easy onboard system. (We might uSe a different System for thiS later on)
Additionally, this is a great baby step into intra-working group governance part of the Giveth HR upgrading. Creating their bounty budget is probably their first official governance and budget management.
Let’s dig in to get your advice:
2 Steps process:
We already have several bounties ready to go. I think it’s best to get a quick solution a.k.a. a general budget for all WG to start using ASAP. Some WG stewards have mentioned that it’s hard to assess what will be a good budget. This will help them to understand their bounty needs. WG can ask their own bounty budget once they are ready. Then we can decide if we should keep a general bounty budget to have an option ready in case a WG need extra funds in a short timeframe
Is this the right way to go?
- Yes, LFG
- We should only have a general bounty budget
- We should wait till WG made their own budgets
To avoid time & energy spent by all parties in passing proposals too often. I suggest starting with a 10,000 USD bounty budget on GIV tokens for all working groups.
Would this be a good amount to start?
- Nah, that’s too much.
- I think that’s about right.
- I think we should go higher, a few dev projects might eat that in no time.
I think we should create a new account to manage bounties exclusively. But there is a trade-off for managing it:
Multi-sig account: Best practice to prevent any bad management.
Non-multi-sig account: Since the general bounties account will not have “that much money” it can be worth it to be managed only by one trusted party to make the process leaner. (i.e. Freshelle)
What do you think…
- Multi-sig - best practices ALWAYS.
- Let’s go lean and efficient
I think that covers the most important things. Am I forgetting anything?
